Huston-Tillotson University Reviews
I love Huston-Tillotson University. I will be a junior Fall 2018. It is the most diverse campus I've stepped foot on. All of my professors are great and actually cares about each individual student. The falculty is wonderful. There are so many opportunities that Huston-Tillotson University offers their students. If I could change anything, it would probably be the size of the dorms. They're very small rooms shared by 2 people. The temperature is almost never right, either too hot or too cold. But other than that, I believe there is nothing else I would change about my HBCU. I love it here and can't wait to give back.
Huston-Tillotson is an amazing school to attend. Its located right in the middle of Austin so every attraction that Austin's downtown has to offer is within reach. The campus environment is very friendly and welcoming and you never feel out of place when you're there. The campus also sits on one of the highest points in downtown so from a few different angles, you get a good look at the city skyline which is always a nice touch. The classes are small, so you get a sense of inclusiveness, and every professor on campus is dedicated to making your experience worth your time. I'd recommend it to anyone.
What I like about Huston-Tillotson is how small it is. It might seem like a bad thing when looked at at first but when looked at closer, it makes the campus feel like a small community. I have made strong friendships as well as succeeded academically while enjoying my classes. The only thing that I think my university should change is the financial aid and business sector of staff, there should be more clarity between them and the students because there have been some issues regarding that sector.
